Survivors’ Network Open Day

Friday 13 October 3-5pm

6a Pavilion Buildings, BN1 1EE

Contact the Network on 01273 203380 to find out more about the event and their services.

Survivors’ Network was established in 1990 by a group of female survivors of childhood sexual abuse to provide services that would support other female survivors of childhood sexual abuse. They have grown from those humble beginnings to an organisation that now offers a range of professional relevant services to survivors of any gender aged 14+ who have experienced any form of sexual violence. The charity is a fully accredited member of Rape Crisis England and Wales and the Rape Crisis Centre for Sussex.

The number of rapes recorded by the police in England and Wales in 2014 rose to 24,043 – the highest level for at least 10 years, according to the Office for National Statistics. Survivors’ Network is contacted by over 900 people every year and that number is growing. Rape and sexual abuse can happen to anyone, regardless of their age, gender, race, religion, culture or social status.

If you have experienced sexual violence at any point in your life then you can contact Survivors’ Network on 01273 720110, via email on help@survivorsnetwork.org.uk or text 07717 999989 between 7pm – 9pm on Wednesdays and Fridays. If you would like someone to talk to outside of these hours, this information sheet  provided by Survivors’ Network has details of all the other relevant helplines across the country.
